I love a love story and this delivers. As a baby's involved I guess there's a pun in there somewhere.
James Wick, our manly man with a tender heart and beautiful blue eyes, is delicious. April, our female (and heavily pregnant) protagonist is strong and sexy. Love her grandmother!
I look forward to the next novel. I have already bought this a few times for friends.
It's wonderful to read a novel without the teenage anst that seems to be in most books these days. I'm in my late 30's and I really like young adult literature, probably from my teaching days, but I'm tired of reading about 16 year old "oh my gosh my life will be over if you don't love me" romances when they really should be just crushes. Cowboy Singer has no teenage angst! HalleFrickenLuia! I was glued to the book, pulled in by the charming characters and humorous dialogue, and captivated throughout the story by the flirting, developing INCREDIBLE sweet friendship, and unmistakeable attraction between April and Jimmy. Download this book and read it! It's definitely a feel good novel. (I apologize for my rambling. It's 2am.) :D PS One night I was up until 5am reading because I couldn't put it down . . . and I was sick and needed the sleep. lol :D
After April Connors' boyfriend leaves her when she is six months pregnant, she moves in with her grandmother while she awaits the birth of her son. Barely settled, her best friend introduces her to James, the lead singer of Jimmy Wick and the flames, a hot band in country music. James is recently single upon going through a bitter divorce, and still fights with his ex for more custody of their daughter, Summer.
Sparks fly when April and Jimmy meet, though both are hesitant to act on them, figuring they are both damaged goods who need to figure out their lives before delving into a relationship. Still, they embark on a friendship that gives April the support she needs when her son, Avery, is born and when his ex-wife uproots their daughter to move to Orlando.
Eventually, their friendship turns romance and romance to love, while both try to determine their future as a couple.
This was a ridiculously cute book. I took it on a recent vacation with me, and it was the perfect story to read before going to bed at night and at stolen moments during the day. There is a particular moment toward the end of the book involving a cowboy writing a song for his best girl that I quite enjoyed. (I have said it before, and it will probably always be true: I am a sucker for a man writing a song for the girl he loves.)
The story, though not completely ground breaking or Earth shattering, was still developed well enough and told well. Tiberius captured the essence of the Austin scene without being weighed down with unimportant details or unrelated plot elements.
As far as characters go, April was likeable enough, but my favorite character by far was the title cowboy singer. At one point, while reading the story, I turned to my mom and said, "I am going to marry a country singer/producer." He makes men look good, by being a hands on father and a positive male influence for April's son. Also, he is just plain adorable and totally crushable.
April's baby daddy and James baby mama are also good secondary characters. Despite being moderate villains in the story, Tiberius also gives them enough development to show that even though they create obstacles for the main characters, they are not evil. They have their own interests they are trying to protect, which does not justify all of their actions, but makes them more human.
Tiberius also sets us up for a potential spin-off with James brother, a hunky rancher looking for love. I know I would not mind wrangling that cowboy, if you know what I mean.
I enjoyed the Cowboy Singer and recommend it for anyone looking for a quick romance that leaves you satisfied.
